In 2020, during the COVID-19 lock down period, a group of Dronfield based runners created a friendly, handicapped solo race series to keep themselves active and racing during a period where formal competition and training events had all but vanished.
What started out as a bit of a laugh grew into something amazing. Utilising the stunning local trails and routes, challenging courses were set and good natured competition grew amongst us.
Discussions were held about how to build upon the camaraderie and spirit that had developed and the seed was planted for the creation of Dronfield Running Club.
Whilst there are several larger clubs in our neighbouring towns and cities and various collections of social groups, as far as we know Dronfield has never had a formal, affiliated running club. Our intentions are to change that and provide a platform for runners of all abilities to represent S18.
We are currently going through the process of setting up the club and applying for UKA Affiliation. We will publicise further when that process is concluded so.... watch this space!
If you wish to be kept up to date with our progress as we venture through the various admin hurdles or want to register your interest in joining the club as and when we are ready to accept applications, then please fill in the form below.
